The Pod: a plane without wings
1000 km/h+. Fossil Fuel Free
Using 100% clean electrical power and zero fossil fuels, the vehicle is propelled to full speed by Linear Induction Motors (LIMs).
Diverts air mass flow from the front of the vehicle out the back, reduces air resistance and shock fronts in front of the vehicle.
Cabin Air System
A comfortable microclimate for passengers. Air is pressurized, circulated, filtered, and temperature-regulated.
With low air resistance, the tube interior and "pod" are being designed for velocities in excess of 1000 km/h.
At high speeds, the pod glides on a levitation system to reduce friction.
Pressure-sealing cabin door, automatically opens upon arrival at each station.
A breakthrough to create TransPod
“The key to this breakthrough was to invent a brand-new system -- the TransPod Line -- with a “physics-first” strategy. Rather than copying “hyperloop”, we took a new strategy with a completely new technology, throwing out all previous designs, and instead, returned to fundamental physics and engineering. The result is a next-generation vehicle and transportation system -- TransPod -- holistically designed from the ground up.”
- Ryan Janzen, inventor of TransPod
TransPod aerospace vehicles are designed to carry passengers between cities at ultra-high-speeds. Faster than airline travel, the TransPod tube system is a comfortable, rapid alternative to highway congestion. Discover the passenger experience.
From airline jet fuselage to pod
The TransPod tube system will carry passenger and cargo vehicles on the same route at the same time.
Faster than airline travel, the TransPod tube system is a fully-electric mass transportation system, to reduce carbon emissions, and provide an alternative to highway congestion.
From the 1st to the 5th mode of transport
Update on the origins of tube transport
Discover our station
Fast boarding gates erase the hassle of today’s airports and makes your trip substantially better. Every 2 minutes, a pod can leave the station and travel towards new destinations.
